What is Pipe Relining?

Pipe relining is the process of repairing broken, leaking or blocked pipes and drains. Relining involves inserting a textile liner coated with epoxy resin into the broken section of drain. This then hardens into an inner pipe which is just a few mm thick. The process forms a strong and long lasting bond to the pipe and as it is structurally sound. It can also restore pipes where sections are missing or have separated. In short, we can complete the drain relining in under a day, so your drains can be back to their normal use in no time.

What are the benefits of relining broken pipes?

  • In some cases, pipe relining can be a cheaper option than digging up and replacing the existing pipes.
  • As we’re not digging dirt or breaking through concrete, it creates a lot less mess!
  • If the pipe in question is located under a tiled floor such as in a kitchen, it saves having to replace the tiled floor.
  • Doesn’t affect the structural integrity of buildings or infrastructure.
  • The process of pipe relining can usually be finished in under a day.
  • The end result is that it is actually stronger than new PVC pipe. It is in fact 10x stronger!
  • Pipe Relining can eliminate tree root problems in the relined section of the drain – for good.
  • Pipe Relining is Council approved.

​RTL Trades Pipe Relining Process

Step 1 – An onsite consultation and CCTV inspection of the drainage system with our drainage experts. We can then locate the damaged or broken pipes.
Step 2 – Our drain experts prepare the drain by removing any tree roots. This is done by cleaning the drain with a high pressure water cleaner (known as a jetta) to remove any debris.
Step 3 –
Repair the pipe by relining or patching the pipe. The resin needs to cure for a minimum of 6 to 8 hours.
Step 4 – Carrying out a final CCTV camera inspection of the newly relined pipe, we record a video of the newly relined pipe.
Step 5 – The Relining Report, complete with before and after CCTV footage is prepared for you.
